I saw this cute pin on the NY&CO website recently. I think it might be just right for my look.
Check it out.

1 year

One year ago today we got engaged. Tonight we wound up in a big fight. Are we doing the right thing? Are we really cut out for each other? How much fighting is too much fighting?
As we plan I have a lot of questions. When it's good it's great. But it's so easy for us to have misunderstandings, misgivings, or just flat out fights.

pics aplenty

We got our images via email from our photographer. They are great. I'm truly pleased with them. I know she took a LOT of pictures. In the end she provided approximately 80. She took a variety of poses and in a variety of locations. I think we are the first client she is serving all on her own but that doesn't bother me. She seems like a no nonsense lady.
Naturally, she's not perfect. No one is perfect. But she's business like and professional and I feel we can count on her to do a good job on our big day.

I saw these lovely baskets in the current Oprah Magazine (April 09). They are made from bamboo. Lovely colors, eh? Thinking about the natural colored ones for my centerpieces. Hmm...

We did it!

Our engagement photo shoot was yesterday. Our photographer, Tara Sharma, brought along an assistant and we shot our pictures at a local garden, outdoors. She has a great eye. But also, RocketMan and I just look so cute and were well rested --hence our pictures couldn't help but come out really nicely.

Proofs will be on their way soon!
I'm psyched about the wedding now. Not so scared like before. We still haven't seen the albums but I'm looking forward to getting a preview of what we may be able to order.

She did a great job posing us and helping us get comfortable in front of the camera. We just listened to her directions and tried to act natural. There were moments where I genuinely forgot the camera was there. Especially when we were kissing. Hee heee...

In the meantime, the interest rate on our joint savings account is dropping off a cliff!!! It's down to 1.65 from nearly 3.00 when we started saving last year. That's not cool! We could be earning nearly twice the interest. :(
